SC40 Cruiser

adapted from Colony Wars by Patrick Stutzman

Adapted from the original designs from the SF30 Frigate, the SC40 Cruiser is considered a well-designed and indispensible fleet craft by many of the governments and organizations that utilize this ship in their defense fleets.
  The SC40 was designed to be highly effective in front-line skirmishes and has been known to stand its ground against a wide variety of capital ships, including Victory-class Star Destroyers.
  Tactical Fire: the SC40 Cruiser demonstrates its ability to punch through enemy fronts and decimate vessels with acute precision time and time again. As a standard action, a SC40 Cruiser can forgo all attacks to provide tactical fire to all squares in a 2-square radius around itself. All allied starships may reroll its attack roll with its primary weapon system but must take the result of the reroll even if it is worse.
